1. Art Supplies are Hella Expensive
It is far too easy to spend hundreds of dollars in one sitting. I spent $20 alone on two sheets of matting paper. We are poor college kids.
2. You Have to Drive Everywhere
Not only do you have to buy hella expensive things, you must leave campus to get to the hella expensive things. This is especially difficult for those who do not have a car on campus. SOS send help.
3. Classes are Insanely Long
Two art classes didn't seem like a lot until I realized it was 6 hours a day. I mean, I know art takes a long time, but come on.
4. Lugging Supplies Everywhere
You know how your parents would always talk about how "in their day" they would walk 10 miles carrying 20lbs in a blizzard just to get to school? Yeah, that's basically art students.
5. The Inevitable "You're Going to be Poor"
I know, thank you for your brilliant insight. I plan to eat my paintings.
6. Can't Forget the "That is Such a Useless Major"
Again, thank you so much for your brilliant input. I'll be sure to switch majors immediately.
8. The Infamous "Can you draw me?"
I don't think artists will ever escape this question.
7. Getting Art Supplies in the Mail is like Christmas
What's better than getting a nice, dusty cardboard box full of things you spent all your money on? Probably nicely wrapped boxes of things you didn't spend all your money on, but hey, it's still pretty great.
9. Forgetting a Project Until the Night Before
Essentially it is like forgetting you have a 10-page paper due the next day.
10. The Moment of "What am I doing with my life?"
I feel like everyone in an art major will feel this at one point. Just keep on keeping on, art friend.
